Hey everyone, sorry if we're beating a dead horse here but I haven't been able to find exactly what I'm looking for searching the forums or google.
I'm finally ready to start buying mods for my black 2014 GT
and want to start in the wheel, tire and suspension department. My heart is pretty well set on the AMR Dark Stainless wheels and I'm leaning toward Mickey Thompson Street Comps for the rubber.
Originally I had planned to go staggered, 20x8.5 in front and 20x10 in the back with 255/35r20 and 305/35r20 tires respectively. In researching this setup, I started seeing suggestions that you can actually run 20x10 wheels on all 4 corners with the right setup.. well maybe, because others seem to suggest it won't work. This appeals to me, as I had been wanting to squeeze a 275/35r20 on the front, but the 8.5" AMR wheels are just a pinch too narrow for comfortable fitment. If you can, in fact, run a 10" wheel on the front, it would happily hold a 275 and I would be grinning from ear to ear.
As I mentioned, the wheels are AMR 20x10" with a convex profile and a +48mm offset. Are any of you guys running a similar setup? Do you know what the main issues are to look out for? My intentions are to follow up the wheels and tires with an Eibach Pro-Street coil over kit for full adjustment of ride height.
I could even purchase them at the same time or wait until I have it all before installation of the height adjustment is necessary before installing the wheels. I'm just getting a bit nervous wondering if the coil overs would end up interfering with the wide wheels/tires up front. If it's mostly a matter of shaving down a bolt then I'm not worried, but if it starts getting into major clearance issue territory I may abandon ship and stick with an 8.5" wheel up front.
